HO scale locomotive cameras
Author: bath_wildcat

I am wondering if any of you here have ever filmed yours or someone elses layout with some kind of mini camera.  I am planning on taking my modeling a bit further with this as I know a group in Sandusky, Ohio that had a pretty good layout.  I want to provide them with a video of the layout from the perspective of either on a flatcar, or from the locomotive itself.  Something these guys could play when visitors are around.  

Even if you have done something like this-please post up.  I would like to see those.

One of our members created a camera car with a boxcar and we took footage of our layout to use for the ad for our annual train show.
Here is what we used just to give you an idea. I think we need to work on a straight video of the layout for display and promotion.

Geesh seems like yesterday when I had my Lionel 1980s "Rail Scope" set. Those were the days trying to see the video on a black and white TV.

I have a HO CNW GE-9 with a camera looking thru the front window power by a 9 volt battery. Work real well and a lot better then a camera on a flat car.

I bought the Polaroid cube. Very reasonable price and does 1080P


Here is a video on that other site that shows my layout video taped with the cube.

I have used my GoPro on a flat car.  Takes a little bit of editing, since if you have tunnels it won't go through unless it is on its side.  Takes a great video.

You can view a sequence of an HO train movement made with a GoPro camera on a flat car at tinyurl.com/vytovideo
